Question for the linguists

When did "base-ball" become "baseball"???

Bet the ice cream was good

Those freezer buckets in the cart at right appear to be for 5-gallon ice cream cans. Large freezers like that are still available, complete with a belt wheel instead of a hand crank on the turning mechanism so a motor can do the work.

"Dry Ice"

Must have been a necessity for those ice cream wagons, and surely it was available in 1906.

[Dry ice was not used commercially until the mid-1920s. -tterrace]

Weekend get-away

Do you think all those folks were there to get away from it all?
